These are a replacement for my previous Toyo Proxies 4 which I liked. The Proxies were about $800 for a set and I was looking for what was out there. The NeoGens seem to get good reviews and they are inexpensive, about $500 for a set of 4.
I've put about 30,000 miles on these tires and there is still a fair bit of tread left. Handling is very similar to the Toyos, I'd be hard pressed to say which are better. Good grip on dry and wet highways, the Toyos might be slightly better in the wet. The NeoGens are quite a bit less noisy than the Toyos. I'd highly recommend them for someone looking for an inexpensive set of tires, good blend of handling and mileage for the cost. We had some snow this year and they are adequate in the snow. I also have a set of Michelin Ice-2s that I ran for a while and those are great snow tires for my WRX.
